The Town of Corte Madera is in the design phase of a project to widen the existing 4 foot wide sidewalk on the north side of Paradise Drive to 8 feet between San Clemente Drive and Seawolf passage in order to create a multi-use path that is accessible for both pedestrians and bicyclists. The new multi-use path will continue the Bay Trail at San Clemente Drive and provide a pathway for both pedestrian and cyclists to use outside of the busy roadway.
This project originated from requests many residents in the Mariner Cove neighborhood and the Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC) due to the narrow existing sidewalk that is used heavily by young children who use the route to walk to school.
The Town received a federal One Bay Area Grant (OBAG) which will contribute $595,000 towards construction of this project.
Status: Design - The project began design at the beginning of 2020
